“Through Fire and Water”: thank you, Canada!

Fred Maroun is a Canadian of Arab origin who supports Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state. He also supports a liberal and democratic Middle East where all religions and nationalities, including Palestine, can co-exist in peace with each other and with Israel, and where human rights are respected.
From his latest post:
It is extremely clear to anyone who understands the history of the Israel / Arab conflict that in the war between Israel and Hamas, one side is right and the other side is wrong. One side would make peace in an instant if the occasion presented itself while the other side will not stop until forcibly stopped. One side goes to great lengths to avoid civilian deaths while the other side goes to similarly great lengths to ensure the death of as many civilians as possible on both sides. On side wants to live, trade, grow, innovate, and the other side wants to pile up the dead bodies until Islamist victory.

U.S. President Barack Obama knows this. British Prime Minister David Cameron knows this. Every Western world leader knows this, but only one world leader is willing to go to the logical conclusion and support Israel “through fire and water”, without excuses, without compromises, without political double-speak, and without misplaced political correctness. This is moral courage. This is courage that the world needs now more than ever.
But read it all.
